Congratulations to the 2017 Research Award Recipients

Research offers hope and undisputed benefits for improving outcomes in lung diseases.

Lung disease struggles to attract the same level of research funding received by other disease areas. Lung Foundation Australia works tirelessly to help fill this gap, with support for research remaining one of our critical priorities.

Through our annual Research Awards Program, Lung Foundation Australia raises funds to support medical research into the cause, treatment and cure of lung conditions.
